After School Program – Wilmington NC

We are pleased to offer after school care and pickup from area elementary schools during the school year. We currently pick up from the following elementary schools: Ogden, Murrayville, Wrightsville Beach, Bradley Creek and College Park.

After your children are done with their school day, we load them into our Giggles van and bring them to our new facility located behind the Harris Teeter in Mayfaire Town Center.

When they arrive at Giggles we feed them a snack and make sure their homework is completed. We do have designated after school teachers who help your child with their homework everyday if they need it. We are a small program and generally have around a 1:5 teacher to child ratio for homework time.  After homework, we have a fun daily activity for the kids. Following homework and the group activity, free play is encouraged until you come and pick your children up when you are done with your work day.

All After School Options include school days, half days, and four hours after 2PM on teacher work days.  If you need care on Holidays, or Saturdays, you can pay hourly or choose our After School Unlimited option.
